Yes, the OS can't tell the difference, it looks like a normal machine,
which is somewhat the point.

This is dependent on the hardware vendor, but to the machine, won't
matter (see above).  IBM xSeries Bladecenters (I can personally very
strongly recommend these) actually have Cisco switch modules that plug
in in the back and look like normal gig switches.  Internally, you're
given two ethN devices on the linux host -- the ethernet cards are on
the blades themselves.
